Hi everyone! I just bought myself a Lomo camera: the Diana F+ and I'm experimenting with it. I love it so far, but the plastic strap it came with is not the most comfortable on my neck, so I decided to knit a cover for it. I'm happy with how it turned out, but I had to sew it around the plastic one. I want to come up with a way to make some I can change it when I get bored.
 Thanks for looking!

great idea! I love lomos! I have the action sampler and the super action sampler. Such fun!

too cute! And how much do you love that camera? I'm in the market for one (because I finally got a job and can afford to treat myself!) but was thinking of getting the mini because I have a lot of 35mm on my hands....

Awesome idea.
I had the same problem when I got a Diana Mini, so the strap went the the thrift-store Yasicha (which has light issues and doesn't get used). Since then Diana hasn't had a strap. You gave me an idea for a crochet strap.

Great idea! I got my Diana in July this summer, and am already SO tired of the stupid strap! (I almost caved in and bought a leather one, but I like your version much better! )

I'm still rediscovering the wonders of film so most of my pics so far are not that great. Anyone know where to find shooting tips?
I'm planning on making a carrying case for my Diana, since i really don't like the leather one they have on lomography.com, but I haven't decided on the look yet: knitted, perhaps? I don't know...but I'll post as soon as I get my butt in gear.

Thanks for all the great comments! It's an ego boost!LOL
